The Machine Intelligence Research Institute (MIRI) is a research non-profit organization. MIRI’s mission is to develop tools for the design and analysis of general-purpose artificial intelligence (AI) systems, with the aim of making such super-intelligent systems more reliably aligned with human interests.

About this charity

Many discussions of the possibility of human-equivalent artificial general intelligence are often relegated to the realms of science fiction. However, researchers largely agree that AI is likely to begin outperforming humans on most cognitive tasks in this century.

MIRI’s work is aimed at helping jump-start a paradigm of AI research that is conscious of the field’s long-term impact. The team at MIRI is focused on developing the mathematical theory of trustworthy reasoning for advanced autonomous AI systems.
